OPI Peanuts Collection

Press Sample

I was extremely excited when I heard that OPI was releasing a collection based on the Peanuts!  One of my all time favorite cartoons growing up! (and still today)  I have a memory and emotion connected to the Peanuts and my Grandpap, who passed away many years ago.  Every time I think of or see the Peanuts I think of my Grandpap and it makes me quite happy!  

The collection!

Good Grief! - completely Charlie Brown inspired!  Kicking myself for not adding black zig zags!  I had high hopes for this yellow, unfortunately I was disappointed.  The color is fantastic but the formula is not.  It was very streaky.  I applied two coats but if wearing without art or glitter I would apply three thin coats.

Who Are You Calling Bossy?!? - inspired by Lucy, guessing her black hair.  Fantastic black! Almost opaque in one coat.  I added a second to even everything out.

Where's My Blanket??? - Linus and his blanket, such an iconic image.  Add this matte glitter and you get a brilliant speckled look with a hint of color.  I applied one coat and did some dabbing for better glitter placement.

To Be or Not to Beagle - this collection would not be complete without an ode to Snoopy!  Another great speckled effect!  I love how the blue pops off the nail!  I applied two coats and dabbed for better glitter placement.

This is such a fun collection! Yes, there is the yellow disappointment but it is beautiful under the glitters.  With careful application you can make it work.  And the glitters are interesting and unique...who wouldn't want to add them to his/her collection?!?!
